5.0 out of 5 stars Must have!!! July 28, 2010
Verified Purchase
This series of videos is a must have for any sword enthusiast who does not have access to in-class training. The first video shows the new "practitioner" how to bow and show respect, as well as gives direction to quite a few simple techniques and katas. The second and third video allow the viewer to experience progressively more complex forms and techniques. I have personally read many articles and own several books written by Masayuki Shimabukuro and have found that every product that he and his American student have put out, is of the highest quality. Great video quality and very informational. Well worth the purchase.

Well done videos (I bought all three) with clear and concise instruction and demonstration. I have learned much and enjoy watching them over and over. You can't absorb all the information they give you with one viewing. I would highly recommend this video series for the serious Samurai Sword enthusiast!

I have all 3 volumes and wow there is a lot more to just swinging a sword at water bottles etc. I knew that already but after reading the different reviews on Amazon sword purchases I think every sword owner would benefit from these videos! Thank You! Amazon for making this product available to purchase and for the fast shipping!
